ReviewLike the car, the look, the capabilities. We are very disappointed with the early head gasket leak. This weakness, as I later found out, is a common problem to this engine model. Keep in mind this car only has 9,000 miles on it. The transmission is also a weak spot. It seems to hunt constantly and will hesitate to engage. We will not be keeping this car past warranty. There are websites devoted to the problems we've had, I wished we had done a little more research before we bought. Most reviews for this car were excellent. We have had good dealer treatment so far regarding our concerns. We really like the car, too bad we can't keep it the 10 years we wanted to.
Best FeaturesCold weather package on XS model. All wheel drive. Automatic headlights.
Worst FeaturesTinted glass option. Less sensitive key fob. Better drivetrain reliability and function. Better fuel mileage.
